Bring Me The News can confirm that the game was called in the 4th quarter as police responded to the scene. The game was being live-streamed on YouTube when the chaos happened

According to Richfield police, the shots were reported at about 8:45 p.m. it happened shortly after a school staffer informed an on-site police officer that "school officials had turned away a number of individuals from game entry [who] appeared to be waiting for the game to end."

That group was allegedly gathered northeast of the football field. 

As the on-site officer was en route to the group, the officer hear two gunshots before people fled from the scene. 

Two people were shot, including a 21-year-old man and an 18-year-old man. The younger of the two was taken to a local hospital. Police say both victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries. 

A suspect has not yet been identified, according to police.
